I think your doc has to be update in order to state more accuratly about 
the group mapping status in 3.0alpha23

Here is a patch which fix the note and also some other things :

- update the toc in order to match all content names
- update the toc in order to match the content order
- remove the duplicated paragraph 'A note about charsets'
- remove the <base href> tag.
- switch full URL <a href> for 'back to the toc' to relative ones.
  (browsing a local copy of this document is now OK)
- fix some bad <a href> in the toc
- fix the <title> tag
- add entries for 'Import from /etc/passwd ', 'Migrating from 
smbpasswd', 'A note about mandatory profiles' and 'Password sync' in the toc
- update the note about 3.0alpha23 in the group mapping section

As diff and patch are not standard commands in Win2K, I can supply you 
the patched .html if you prefer.
